Since its inception in 2002, 24 Foundation has raised nearly $25 million to support cancer navigation and survivorship programs through local and national beneficiaries. Below is an at-a-glance look at our current beneficiaries. For more information about 24 Foundation’s impact download our annual report.
Levine Cancer Institute
Levine Cancer Institute is changing the course of cancer care by removing the barriers that separate patients from access to world-class research, breakthrough treatments, and quality care. Their cancer network consists of 13 cancer care locations across the Carolinas. 24 Foundation funds the Genetics, Survivorship and Wellness Program.
Levine Children’s Hospital
Levine Children’s Hospital consists of 12 floors, in which the 11th floor is home to pediatric cancer patients. Each year, the staff at LCH diagnoses 150 new children with cancer and provides follow-up care to thousands of pediatric cancer survivors. Of these patients, 80% will become long-term survivors. LCH is committed to providing continued compassionate support of patients and their families through a survivorship clinic focused on wellness, special needs and preventive care for childhood cancer survivors to ensure the highest quality of life.

Claire’s Army strives to provide support for families fighting childhood cancer. Through an established network of resources, they support the families’ daily responsibilities, allowing them to put their time and focus on their child. They aim to empower parents by eliminating daily stresses that can distract them from the precious moments they have with their sick child, and ease their burden so they will have a clear and focused mind for decision making.
Cool Kids Clubhouse
Founded in Maryland in 2006, the Cool Kids Campaign, has carried out its mission to directly impact children fighting cancer through academic, social and emotional programming. While deciding on our foundation’s name, we kept in mind that kids are kids regardless if they are healthy or sick. Hence the Cool Kids name. Every child wants to feel “cool” even when they don’t feel well.
Go Jen Go
Go Jen Go provides critical financial assistance to local individuals and families who are battling breast cancer. They provide aid during diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Hospitality House of Charlotte
Hospitality House of Charlotte provides the comforts of home for families of seriously ill loved ones by offering affordable accommodations in the heart of Charlotte’s medical community.
Isabella Santos Foundation
ISF is dedicated to improving rare pediatric cancer treatment options in an effort to increase survival rates of kids with cancer. Over the course of twelve years, ISF has funded nearly $5 million toward expanding the scope of research and treatment and supporting families dealing with cancer in a variety of ways.
NothingPink is focused on providing support for women and men and their families in and around the Greater Charlotte, NC, and Fort Mill/ Rock Hill, SC areas with a mission to increase awareness of hereditary breast and ovarian cancers and provide personalized support for individuals at high risk.
Pinky Swear Foundation
Pinky Swear Foundation eases the financial and emotional impacts experienced by children with cancer and their families by providing basic needs support during a very challenging time. Cancer is not a one-day thing. It is hard to imagine what life is like to have a child going through cancer; it affects the whole family. That’s why their programs are so important. They do not limit requests from families, nor discriminate on socioeconomic status. When cancer enters life, the simple, everyday things aren’t so simple anymore.
Queens University of Charlotte
Queens University offers an annual scholarship to support students who are battling or have battled cancer, or who are dealing with a family member’s cancer. Because of medical bills and other financial stressors, these students often would not be able to afford a Queens education. Funding from 24 Foundation allows these highly-deserving students to experience high-impact learning and engagement opportunities, participate in thought-provoking lectures, excel in athletics, prepare for careers, travel globally, and more.
Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreats & Programs
